There is no better way to Romance your partner or loved one you care on Valentine’s Day than to nourish their mind, body, soul, or belly. Trust me, feeding the ones you love good, home cooked food is the ultimate way to show how much you care.
Sure, it’s nice to get out for a romantic dinner, but if you don’t think ahead and book a reservation early, or are on a limited budget, eating out can be stressful and expensive. Avoid the over priced Restaurant rush and cook your love some food cooked straight from the heart.
Send the kids off to grandmas for the evening, save money and have a romantic night in. You can find a million Romantic Dinner ideas online. My favourite part of a special, intimate dinner is always dessert. I have a special place in my heart for anyone who can whip up a decadent dessert.
I don’t discriminate when it comes to dessert, I love them all equally; especially when it involves real whipped cream. There is just something about real whipped cream with a sprinkle of powder sugar and vanilla that makes me want to eat the whole bowl. You could put it on just about anything and it makes it taste that much better.
I got the inspiration for this recipe from my Grandma’s Trifle. She makes one for every Holiday Occasion. If you’ve tasted Nan’s Good Ol’English Trifle, you’d know that she has a heavy hand when it comes to the Harvey’s Bristol Cream. Somehow, for me, trifle isn’t trifle if it doesn’t have that little something to it. For Nan, that little something is Fine Sherry. While, I didn’t use Sherry for this recipe, I did use Hennessy which is a Fine Cognac. If you don’t do alcohol, no worries. Simply omit it!
I called it a TriFait because it’s not really a Trifle and not really a Parfait, it’s the best of both and it’s guaranteed to get those romantic hormones surging.
